Bread is something even the best cooks don’t attempt sometimes. It seems complicated and science-y and if you do it once and it goes wrong, it’s hard to get up the courage to do it again. I understand that — I’ve been baking bread for years, and sometimes, things just don’t work. And it’s pretty easy to just buy a loaf at the store, and you don’t have flour all over your kitchen.

There are breads that you can make that are actually pretty fool-proof, and that really are worth the trouble. Like this super easy flat bread. It takes only a few ingredients, and doesn’t require kneading to oblivion, or rising and trying to figure out when to put it in the oven. In fact, you don’t even need an oven to do it.

The one thing that makes this easy is the use of self-rising flour, which you’ll mix with some yogurt. If you don’t want to buy a bag of self-rising flour for just this (although you may find yourself making these more often after the first time, just saying) you can just add 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt to regular flour.

In addition to the flour, I added Hot Roasted Garlic seasoning, both in the dough and at the end with a brush of Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil. It makes for a flavorful flat bread that is perfect with curries, soups, or even as a quick pizza dough. It’s also delicious as a snack. And it comes together so fast that you won’t have to eat a sad bowl of soup or stew without any bread because you don’t want to head to the store.
